2:07am

2:47am
to 84. and it looks like a messy sunday. we're still stuck in it here back to the southeast. so some changes on the way for the weekend. it was pretty quiet this last weekend, but be aware that saturday and sunday will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms. you can always wake up and get the latest forecast on the weather channel weekdays at 6:00 a.m. with al and stephanie.
